Ateco Piping Bags, Short Spatulas and Pastry Tubes

Ateco Piping Bags, Short Spatulas and Pastry Tubes

Hi, this is Julie Bashore from the Sugar Arts Institute. Let’s have fun with some of the Ateco piping tips. Working with their disposable piping bags that come on a roll, they tear off really easily, I like to work with the smaller 12” bags but they also have 18”. Working with a coupler, remove the nut from the base of the coupler and place the base in the bag as tightly as you possibly can. Working with a pair of scissors, above the screw marks, just cut the edge of the bag and remove that. And then you’re going to choose the piping tube that you’d like to work with, place it on the top of the coupler, and screw it down firmly. This is a piping bag stand; it’s very convenient, especially if you’re piping alone or you don’t want to interrupt anyone to fill the bags, it holds the bags really well and you can slip your icing in there. This is the short-ended Ateco spatula which is quite wide so it’s really convenient for picking up the buttercream. Pull the bag up, place it on the table, and spread the buttercream down to the end. And then of course it’s important not to forget to burp the bag. This piping tip that I’m using is a ruffling pipe piping tip, and it’s absolutely amazing how quickly it works. Have a look, come in close. Doesn’t that give an awesome ruffle? Let’s work with another tip. This is the shell tip; don’t forget to burp your bag. This is great for a border; in fact, I sometimes use it on the edge of my ruffle. It gives a really nice shell design. The tip itself is curved so it gives a nice puffy shell appearance to it. Ateco has a new set that they’ve brought out: polycarbonate plastic piping tips, they are large tips, very strong and very precise in the edging. This one is a basket weave design; it really makes an awesome border. Place the bag over the holder, again, don’t forget to push the butter cream all the way to the edge and burp the bag. It has two edges, a flat edge and a scalloped edge so this makes a great ribbon design; you can also wiggle it or make just a ribbon and also wiggle this. Flip it over and wiggle. Great for basket weave.

    This is a perfect piping tip for almost anything with such a versatile size. It's especially great for piping borders on cakes and filling macarons.
    the 803 size tip is the perfect size tips are piping macarons! i use this when i’m piping smaller macarons! they’re better than the ones you get in the craft store
    Ateco makes a great product for the price. We are a bakery so we need to use top notch products and this is a brand we will buy again!
    This piping tip gives great consistent icing delivery. It is easy to clean and durable. I would recommend this product to for its cost and effectiveness.
    I really like these Ateco 803 5/16" Plain #18 Piping Tip (August Thomsen) to create pearl buttercream borders on my cakes and make my cakes look very professional. The price is very good for this very good quality product.
    I'm really enjoying this piping tip, It has a good sized smooth round tip its very good for filling mousse cups, or for icing cupcakes
    I love this tip because it is a bit longer than a standard Wilton tip and it has a small ridge around the large end that seems to help it stay in place better.
    This decorating tip is the perfect size for filling cupcakes and pastries. It is just a basic tip, no design but sometimes that's all you need!
    I think this small to medium sized plain pastry tube is best used for frosting bite size cupcakes. It adds just enough frosting with a simple pipe.
    Perfect for my beehive cupcakes! Works great with reusable bags. I leave the tips on and freeze my frosting to use later. Buy more than one!
    This size is an "in between size" - you can't really use it for writing, but it is good for borders on cakes or for frosting some cupcakes - For the price, try different ways to use this tip!
    Hi I am using the 5/16" #3 plain pastry tube witch is just a plain round tip. It is simple and easy witch is good for a mom like me.
    I'm a fan of Ateco piping tips. They're always reliable and reasonably priced. I used this size for various cake/pastry piping jobs and it's perfect.
    This plain pastry tube has a 5/16" wide tip. The tube is made by Ateco, a very high quality manufacturer of pastry tools. Pastry tubes can be used to decorate cakes, cupcakes, and other pastries and desserts. The tools makes decorating easy and precise. The pastry tube is made of durable stainless steel. We highly recommend hand washing these attachments.
    A good strong 5/16 tip good for piping larger diameter round design or writing bolder letters. Good quality stainless as always with Ateco. You can't go wrong.
    This 5/16" plain #3 pastry tip make such elegant patterns of a great circle which I love to use whenever decorating cakes or cookies. I highly recommend using them for any baking you may do.
    This is a plain pastry tip, and easy to use with or without a coupler. I use this tip for piping macaroons, or when creating pearling. The Ateco brand tips are very good-they are made of stainless steel, hold up very well to normal use and abuse, and clean up easily in the dishwasher without rusting.
    These are a perfect size for a pearl trim on a cake. Or if I want a nice thick buttercream name written on a cake.
    Ateco 803 5/16" Plain #3 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) is the perfect item for writing on cakes and cupcakes, it's thin enough to draw detail.
    This 803 Ateco tip works nicely with large items and cupcakes. The stainless steel thickness is great for our needs, keep its original shape even after our everyday wear and tear
